Publisher's Summary

What happens when a major earthquake changes life as you know it and the boy you thought you hated ends up saving you? Three times! Courtland Reese is the guy everyone hates and makes fun of because... well, he is weird. He communicates with animals. Strange or interesting, seventeen-year-old Adela Castielle can't quite figure out, but when he saves her from being trampled by her own horse, she begins to understand him a little better and wants to learn more about him. But, Max - her best friend/dream guy/someday-to-be-her-husband-only-he-doesn't-know-it-yet-hates Courtland with a passion.
Adela wants to know why, except neither boy is talking. When Max leaves her stranded in his parents' wine cave with his worst enemy, Courtland, after what the experts are calling a “megathrust” earthquake, Adela starts to question her loyalty to Max as steamy kisses in a dark damp cellar only fuel her emotions with more conflict. But does she really have time to worry about that when fire, destruction and mayhem surround her?

Tremors of the Heart!

Any additional comments?

Susan put so much emotion and heartache in this story that it literally felt as though I was there and feeling Courtland and Adela's pain. I got choked up several times, and it takes a lot for a story to make me cry; Susan did it more than once. It was raw, gritty, sorrowful and perfect. Just when I thought things were beginning to look up for the main characters, something else would happen to knock them back down. The attraction between Adela and Courtland isn't obvious at first, but their love for one another slowly blooms in their darkest hour. This is a very well written book. Allusive Aftershock isn't the first book I've read by Susan Griscom, and it certainly won't be the last. Well done, Susan. 5 stars from me on this one!
